After 10 years of juggling, I just got my first clubs! Can anyone recommend some videos with nice 3 club tricks in? What are some nice 4 club tricks to get started with?

Thanks for any suggestions! :)

Mats, you've come out from the dark side at last! How are you? I haven't seen you in so long.

Anyway, as you now doubtless realise, clubs are great and balls suck. Congratulations on grasping this fundamental and self-evident truth.

I don't care for videos so I can't recommend any, but 4c tricks that are great include 7771, 6532 with a flourish on the 2, and circus-style 71 where you throw the 7s vertically and walk around in a small circle to bring your catching hand under the 7s. Also 3c+head balance, to a drop into 4c, or the fancy version where you drop the club back behind you and blind kick it back into the pattern with the sole of your foot.

Come to Lestival! Mats.

I guess the first one you mean is 7441?

Gah, I should juggle more. What I was actually thinking of was 7333, no idea where 7771 came from. But there's a crisp tenner for anyone who can do it ;-)

If anyone wants to validate any of these siteswaps, the Siteswaphone is back online after being offline for about 3 months due to a hardware failure ‭(+44)117 9115202‬

Whoa, is that thing for real? How does that work? I am so going to ring that when I'm back in the UK next week!!!

It is indeed real, I have called it in the past :-)

Google indicates that at least one version of the source code is available here: http://www.paulseward.com/downloads/siteswaphone-1.0.tgz

Paul can confirm if that is the most recent version.

The code seems well documented. It appears to be a series of macros for the Asterisk IP telephony platform.

Now also on github if anyone wants to improve it https://github.com/paulseward/asterisk-siteswaphone

I’m hosting it on a Sipgate number, so calls are free for other Sipgate users around the world.

And yes, the design goal was to do it purely as asterisk macros with no cheating by calling out to external utilities. It’s quite good fun too.

I’m happy for people to play with it, share the number, host their own version etc - although if you do then I’d really appreciate it if you could let me know so I get the warm fuzzy feeling

After some time this week juggling outside in cold, humid conditions, I can confirm that beanbags are great and clubs suck.

And I'm doing well, circusing the summer and vanishing into the mountains for winter. I won't be making Lestival due to work. Quite a shame as it is a great convention. Might see you at Bungay if you are in attendence? Hope all is well with you in Leicester?
